Advisory Committee

The GenCen Advisory Committee works to provide advice and support for the co-directors on critical matters of GenCen policy and programs. The committee will usually meet with the GenCen co-directors twice each semester.

The voting members of the GenCen Advisory Committee consist of eight Core Faculty, one graduate student, and one undergraduate student. The faculty members are comprised from units across campus, including:

Additionally, the GenCen co-directors serve as ex-officio, non-voting members, along with representatives from the Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, and Transgender (LBGT) Resource Center.

Each year, potential committee members are nominated and elected by the body of Core Faculty.
